Meeting Description:

The Language Study Unit of the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano is pleased
to announce that 'r-atics-3 – the 3rd international workshop on the
phonetics, phonology, sociolinguistics and typology of rhotics― will be
held in Bozen-Bolzano (Italy) on the 2nd and the 3rd of December, 2011. We
are looking forward to continuing the tradition established at previous
'r-atics meetings in Nijmegen and Brussels of providing a congenial forum
for presentation and discussion of current research on rhotics. Studies
addressing this topic often have similar goals and produce mutually
informing results, but they are usually presented in distinct contexts,
creating a barrier to their integration. Our aim is to ensure a highly
focused event, with maximal interaction between the participants.

Invited Speakers:

Heriberto Avelino, Max-Planck-Institut für Evolutionäre Anthropologie
Phil Hoole, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München
Hans Van de Velde, Universiteit Utrecht
Roeland van Hout, Radboud Universiteit Nijmegen

Call for Papers:

We welcome original papers and posters on research on rhotics. Topics of
interest for 'r-atics-3 include, but are not restricted to, the following:

- Phonetic diversity of rhotics
- Possible phonological unity of rhotics
- Sociophonetic variation of rhotics
- Diachronic evolution of rhotics
- Rhotics in the languages of the world
- Rhotics in first and second language acquisition
- Rhotics and clinical phonetics

Abstracts should not exceed 500 words (exclusive of references) and should
clearly state research questions, approach, method and (expected) results.
The abstract should not mention the presenter(s) nor their affiliation or
address. The name of the presenter(s) should be inserted in the body of the
email, along with their affiliation and e-mail address. Submitters must
specify if they want their abstract to be considered for a paper; a poster;
a paper or poster.

Please send your abstract as an attachment (.pdf file) to ratics3unibz.it
